  1. Big fan of the Hoover institute. Check them out.

  2. I don’t know, maybe it’s because we have let corporations, the 1%, and the elites rob us blind. Maybe it’s because in the richest country in the world we have rampant poverty, lack of healthcare and jobs they pay less than a living wage.

    • @Holden Caulfield Well said.

    • @Holden Caulfield Democracy is problematic for those that seek power and control. The inequity has grown wide enough for authoritarians to exploit fear and Democracy is under attack all over the globe.

      @Real Talk76 Oh I’m glad b/c I thought you said what I said in just different words. I’m more right to the point. Drump not smart enough to get all this done without help. And Mueller may not have proved Drump was in bed with Putin before he walked down the escalator. But if not why were all the Russians @ his inauguration ball, then having Russians in the Oval Office after firing Comey? And looking to have back channels & phones set up direct to Russia? These are all facts. Putin’s hands have reached far & wide, to turn this world on its head.
      The fact that Putin keeps going back into England or his cronies & kills whoever he hates with poisons only from Russia & other killings all his enemies. All dead I believe it’s up to 14 or 17 people now. Letting everyone know it was him. Ever letting Putin into the US will be a message that it’s over. He is in Africa, South America, Australia England, etc.. His big coup would be the USA!

  3. Decadent means degradation, the decay of society.

  4. Joe’s medical investigator (Dr Michael Berkland)  had many remains in his storage unit… one may be Joe’s intern.


  6. Joe Scarborough murdered intern Lori in his office?

  7. Why does Joe have guest on the show? Joe just can not stop talking, STFU Joe !

  8. Morning Joe, or is it
    Mourning Joe over the poor girl killed in his office?

  9. Poor old Ross. I’m sure he’s a lovely person to discuss The Silmarillion with.

  10. Mika Bryzinski is daughter of Zbigneiw Bryzinski
    (architect and implementer of the New World Order).

  11. Zbigneiw Bryzinski said of his new son in law ” He has low I Q .”

  12. Put this on a truckerhat, a blue hat; “TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK AGAIN” #tocba

  13. The problem is that most of these folks want to return to the fifties. The so-called “good old days”, unless you were female or a person of color. Smdh!

  14. Research : Ronald Bernard ~ Fmr. Dutch Banker (ITNJ Seating)
    by : International Tribunal for Natural Justice

  15. Trump looks like a stable genius when he is swimming, in the shallow end of the GENE pool

  16. Ross Douthat is a fraud. He always getting dunked on by Chapo. He is the decadent by his own definition. A lazy privileged person that doesn’t want anything to change because he is afraid to lost the little thing he has… smh

  17. Can’t wait for Chapo to rip him a new one

  18. Meanwhile in India…..

    120,000 over full to capacity crowd wanting to see President Trump just like here in U.S.A. at Trump Rally’s.
